Cute Moustache Straws


     I made these cute “Moustache Straws” for our Girls Night In/ 2nd Annual Christmas Ornament Exchange/ Ugly Sweater Party this Sunday. They were so easy to make; I even made my own pattern. I just traced it onto different pieces of cardstock and scrapbook paper that I already had. I also used an exacto knife to make the hole for the straws because I tried to use my hole puncher & the hole came out too big.

Happy sipping! How are you kicking off the Holidays?

Hello world!

Hello everyone! I am new to the blogworld and can’t wait to share my thoughts and ideas with all of you! I also can’t wait to read your blogs as well.

     My name is Kristine Joy Marcelo & I would have to say that I am an “All-around-the-World”  kinda girl – as I have lived in, and have been to school on three different continents. I was born in the Philippines, grew up in Germany, and currently reside in Virginia Beach.  *Army Brat for life!* I would also consider myself  “EurAsiAmerican” because I am such a mix of all these cultures, & I wouldn’t have it any other way.

     On this page, I’d like to share my passion and love for all things artsy, creative, make-up related, food-related, and of course, Lovey-Dovey. I will slowly introduce each of those factors in my future blogs.

     I’d also like to introduce my new business, “K Joy Creations.”  It has been up and running for about a month now.  I will be creating and selling handmade cards & personalizing them; I also make small signs (5 x 7 inches or 8 x 10) for weddings, infants, children, & will personalize those also. I do Calligraphy, and would like to create place cards for weddings, and even help with the Calligraphy on invitations.  Again, I will slowly introduce everything in future Blogs.

I’m excited about this new “adventure,” and hope that some of you will join me for the ride!

Lotsa Hugs,
